This is the last Thursday in the International Women’s Month and I had so much fun writing about women-focused content. I hope we all had a chance to unlearn and relearn stuff that society has conditioned us into believing. Remember, #BalanceForBetter is the watch action word for every space.
I chose to write about feminists related myths this week because I observed that many have uninformed pre-conceived notions about feminists and I wanted to clear the air about these popular notions as seen on Nigerian Twitter. Let me know your thoughts, leave a comment below.

Quick background about me, I am the 3rd child of 6 girls. I don’t know when I became passionate about women but I think my position in my family played a role in this.
